I have read the messages on the same subject in the ess-help archives
from March of 2004 and I have made the suggested changes, yet the
problem is still there.
I am running Mac OS X 10.3.3, GNU Emacs 220.127.116.11, ESS-5.1.21 (with
ess-site.el that worked on my linux box)
relevant lines from my .emacs.el file
(setq-default inferior-R-program-name "/usr/local/bin/R --save")
when executing M-x R, R does not start, but in the *R* buffer I get a
Can't exec program: /usr/local/bin/R --save
Process R exited abnormally with code 1 at Fri Apr 16 15:58:21 2004
without --save option, R also does not start and the message reads
Fatal error: you must specify `--save', `--no-save' or `--vanilla'
Process R exited abnormally with code 2 at Fri Apr 16 15:57:46 2004
I also tried to use --vanilla instead of --save, with the same result.
I can run start R from emacs' shell, executing R --save or R --vanilla,
but I don't see the prompt sign '>' and only when entering a command
the result has the prompt, but the line where the cursor is, has no '>'
I would greatly appreciate any comments or suggestions
